Tea has been around for thousands of years. The tea plant is hardy and can live to be over 100 years old. Tea was once considered more valuable than silver. This is a precious, endlessly giving plant that needs to be respected and cared for. We are trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Our goal is to be close to 0% waste at Elden Street Tea Shop. We plan to have biodegradable, compostable, and reusable utensils, cups, plates, tea bags, packaging, etc.
We look forward to sharing our ideas of using tea compost, growing plants sustainably, and following good gardening practices with the community. If you have ideas or suggestions of environmental practices you would like to see in the tea shop, post them in the comment section below.
We are officially opening online!
We are officially opening Elden Street Tea Shop online store! We don't want to wait until December to have you try our locally blended teas. You can purchase them starting now and they will be shipped out at the end of August. Just in time for peak tea weather!
Once you make your first purchase, share your purchase on social media and get a free sample of another tea! It will be sent out with your order.
